Josep M. Porta received the degree in Computer Science in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2001, both from the UPC. From 2001 to 2003 he held a postdoctoral position at the University of Amsterdam. Currently, he is an Associate Researcher at the Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial and his research interests include planning under uncertainty and computational kinematics.
Currently he is Associate Editor of the IEEE TRO.
